Out on Film scores another major coup with the screening of “Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy” with the star himself attending the viewing.

The announcement of Mapa’s appearance with director Andrea James at Out on Film comes just days after the LGBT film fest announced its opening night film will be “Blackbird” directed by Patrick-Ian Polk and starring Oscar winner Mo’Nique.

“We are very excited to screen this film and have Alec and Andrea down,” says Jim Farmer, festival director of Out On Film, in a prepared statement. “It’s a very funny, topical and eventually heart-warming film. Alec is one of the funniest people around and we can’t wait to host him.”

ambdstill19Mapa, an actor, comedian and writer, is also excited to be coming back to Atlanta.

“I am beyond thrilled that our film ‘Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy’ is an official entry in Out on Film,” says Mapa in a press release. “Atlanta is one of my favorite cities on the planet. Southern hospitality, great food and the hottest guys—what better place to share our film’s message of love, laughter  and equality? It’s gonna be a hootenanny of epic proportion. I can’t wait.”
